Heart of India opens today at 79 Second Ave. near Fourth Street. As a commenter said, the new restaurant is owned by the folks who ran Curry Majal across the Avenue...(their rent got jacked up to $9,000 a month...)
Madras Cafe was here earlier... Not to cast a pall over 79 Second Ave....However, the address was also once home to the Binibon. As we've written before, on July 18, 1981, Jack Henry Abbott, the celebrated ex-con writer, got into a fight with the cafe owner's 22-year-old son-in-law, Richard Adon. Abbott stabbed Adon in the chest, killing him. Ephemeral NY has more on the crime here.
